    Did you buy that lift? I looks much simpler and more affordable than a full size lift. Pretty nice for a personal shop. :thumbsup:

    the lift sells new for like 1400 i bought it used form a guuy i know for a cool 450. its def much simpler than a full size... its elec/ hydraulic and its 110 to so u just plug it in the wall and go! worked perfect for me cause i dont have the room for a full size. tahnsk for the compliments on the shop i really love it... it cost me alot of money and i put alot of time in it gettin it setup but it was well worth it. oh ya the lounge is any car you fee like plunkin your ass into :D

    That lift is nice if you're doing body work, but will completely suck if you're working under the car for a few reasons- 1) it's not high enough, so you're still laying on your back or kinda half sitting up, and 2) you can't get to half of the bottom side of the car because of the ramps.

    If you do a lot of body work, it's a great lift. If you don't, it's not your lift.

    If he did I still don't think it would be any different. I think he would still have a 500 hp garage, and no working del slow.

    Its a drier for the airlines so the condensation from the lines doesnt rust up all of your pneumatic tools or fuck up your paint when your spraying.

    thanks guys. I try to keep the place as clean as i can most of the time, i cant sdtand workin in a messy shop.

    Xyswany: this is my personal garage where i work on nights and weekends, during the day I work full time at Bodymax collision center, a local body shop as a collision repair tech.

    Loco: As u can see i majoritly do bodywork, but i also do some mechanical repair as wellthe lift is kinda shitty for completely undercar stuff but it works real well for suspension stuff and engine bay stuff as well because for that there isnt anything in your way underneath.

    B: garagemates would be cool but im way up in migitty Maine so i dont know as how that would work.

    Smonkeyboy: the clean air sytem is a drier and a dirt and iol eliminator for when i paint. its suppsed to remove 99% of all junk in the air lines. All i use it for is spraying.... i have another line with water seperator for my air tools B)

    oh ya and the part you cant see is a 60 gal. Ingersoll Rand 2 stage 7hp upright air compressor(its in a completely different part of the building so i never have to hear it run :) ) Best part about the whole place is......its my grandparents building and they dont make me pay rent so all i have to pay is heat and electricity :p . I also help them out whenever needed. Oh and its 22'x36' if anyone wwas wondering

    oh also the garage had the following that I was lucky enough not to have to buy: 3 workbenches, 3 vises, a bench grinder with wire wheel and grinder wheel, a bolt rack, a full size fridge, and probably the best of all a beefy chainfall :D :D
